Family Coverage

Each year, you are given one opportunity to purchase family coverage for your spouse and/or dependent(s) by completing an application form through the SAITSA Student Benefits Plan Office and paying the family coverage fee. All family add-on forms and applicable fees must be received by the applicable deadline for the semester period of enrolment. Your family can only be covered while you are a student on the plan(s).

IMPORTANT: These fees are in addition to the student health and dental fee.

2017 - 2018 Family Add-On Fees:
Health (one or more dependent) $165.00
Dental (one dependent) $185.00
Dental (two or more dependents) $250.00

Please note: Your optional family add-on is not automatically renewed. In order for your family add-on to continue, you must purchase the coverage each benefit year before the applicable deadline. FAMILY ADD-ON FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Spouse means the person who is a resident of Canada, and who is married to the student, or a person of either sex who has continuously co-habitated with the student for a period of at least one year and who is publicly represented as the student's wife or husband.

Dependent means an unmarried child who is a resident of Canada, and entirely dependent on the student for maintenance and support, and who is:
1) under 21 years of age,
2) under 25 years of age and attending a college or university full-time, or
3) physically or mentally incapable of self-support and became incapable to that extent while entirely dependent on the student for maintenance and support and while eligible under 1) or 2) above.

To add family coverage to your Student Health and Dental plan submit the completed Family Add On Form, along with the required fees to the SAITSA Student Benefits Plan Office, before the established deadline.
